Re: A New generation Of Insect Control


Day 15 and it's looking as if this group are typical teens of today and wanna stay home to be fed, laundry done and mom to wipe their butts. It's not lookin like they'll be outta there in 17 days, possibly 20 +. The weather has been colder than usual so maybe that's a factor.

Re: A New generation Of Insect Control


Even the skunks are good for pest control if we don't mind the lawn being excavated a little while searching for grubs and the ducks excel at chasing bugs even though they look rather clumsy. I believe the geese are more into grass grazing, not that they wouldn't catch a bug and they are just beautiful, especially in flight.

It looks as if the Robins are about the same age as the Phoebes.

Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

I remember as a kid going over to the farm next door and tossing grasshoppers into the chicken coup, OH MY!! They do love insects. Chickens will do a good job of reducing the local bug population for sure.

Very nice. Eastern Phoebe is one of many of my favorite birds to find. I know their songs/calls from a good distance away.



I get Carolina Wrens that like to nest in the overhang above my back deck every year. Most recent nest was a couple weeks ago. I set up a GoPro next to the nest and got a bunch of clips of the babies getting fed, which I still need to edit and upload.

Funny story about the Carolina Wrens. I knew they would be nesting, so in the winter I built a birdhouse following plans I found online for the Wrens. Instead of using the birdhouse, they built their nest right above it.

I've also got loads of Carolina Chickadees' in my back yard. I counted 5 in the same tree yesterday afternoon. Another fun bird to watch.



I caught these next birds at the end of April as they stopped in Galveston.

Northern Parula



Black and White:



Blackpoll:



Prothonotary:



Black-throated-Green:



These are only the first of what I shot. I still have a lot of pictures to sort through from 10 days of birding. I think I recorded 121 species of bird that I had never seen before.

Re: A New generation Of Insect Control


After a slight house renovation and redecoration because of the rowdy group of youngsters earlier this season Mrs. Phoebe is ready for the second group of 5.

I've relocated the nest box and can observe and video through the dining window.

She seems rather alarmed at the sound of the camera or of the photographer. It's not easy to have your babies moved . . .
